Monica Miller started working at WCBS in 2004 as the station’s New Jersey Correspondent. During her tenure covering the Garden State, she racked up more than 70,000 miles, covered three governors, stood knee deep in flood waters from Trenton to Oakland, and rode the fastest roller coaster in the world without losing her, um, equipment. However, Monica turned in her press pass for a backpack and passport in 2006 to travel the world for 16 months with her husband. She’s delighted to be back at WCBS covering New York City’s five boroughs and the tri-state area.
Some of her more memorable stories include the controversy over building a mosque near Ground Zero, Governor McGreevey’s resignation, and a deployment to New Orleans hours after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast with New Jersey’s Air National Guard. Her work has been heard on the CBS Radio Network, NPR and many local radio stations such as WOR, WBGO, and WNYC. She also worked as a reporter for CNN affiliate News 12 New Jersey, and written for The Philadelphia Inquirer and The Times of Trenton.
In 2003, Monica received a fellowship from RIAS Berlin and RTNDF and was also honored by the North Hudson Islamic Educational Center and the Muslim and Arab Communities of New Jersey for her coverage of the Islamic community after the 9/11 attacks. Her work has been recognized by the Associated Press, PRNDI (Public Radio News Directors), The New York Association of Black Journalists, and has contributed to work honored with Edward R. Murrow Awards by the RTNDA.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts in International Affairs from The George Washington University and Master of Journalism from Temple University. She’s also a volunteer for the Red Cross of Greater New York.
